Northern Colorado hosts Northern Arizona as major underdog with a chance to make a statement.
Northern Colorado will get the chance to turn around its season when they host Northern Arizona on Saturday afternoon. They are just 2-5 on the season and 1-3 in the Big Sky, so things aren't going great for the Bears, while Northern Arizona is 6-1 and a perfect 4-0 in the conference. So there is no doubt who the underdog is, but it is an opportunity for Northern Colorado to make a statement.
The Bears' only wins this season have come against Colorado Mesa University and Idaho St., with the latter coming last week. It was a good weekend for Northern Colorado, who won 52-14, but Northern Arizona will be a whole new challenge. If they are going to win, they will need a big day from Tromaine Dennis, who rushed for 178 yards last week.
Game Date/Time: Saturday, October 27; 1:35 p.m. CT
Venue: Nottingham Field, Greeley, CO
